Ecological Restoration: Volunteers Needed to Plant!

UW-REN Volunteer Opportunity

Yes, you might get a little muddy, but how can you resist this young volunteer’s earnest plea to come out and help?

The 2012-13 University of Washington Restoration Ecology Network (UW-REN) Capstone class has been in the process of restoring eight different project sites around the Puget Sound, and they need your help to continue the work into May. There is a volunteer event almost every week at one of our sites located in Seattle, Bothell, Shoreline and at Pierce College in Lakewood.

Projects include restoration work in a variety of ecosystems, including wetlands, Garry oak prairie, beach sand dunes and riparian forests. Volunteering with UW-REN is a great way to learn more about and be involved with ecological restoration, your natural surroundings and your community.

Check out a continuously updated listing of events, and if you have questions or want to get involved, email Lindsey Hamilton!
